September 22 is the Autumnal Equinox, the day and night are equal. With the powerful energies of the equinox, let's join together - the day before and  prepare for the "balance point."

At these special times of the equinox and solstice, cosmic portals are created where spiritual work may be magnified...By doing this work, the participant may experience a greater sense of wholeness.

We have riden the wild waves of a summer full of eclipses!! It is time to stand on your surf board of life in equilibrium  in deep gratitude.

Shamanic work is a powerful prescription to keeping yourself rooted and grounded -it assists in allowing the wild to come through without taking over. Every month we meet to do this soul work  - and this month you are invited to dive into the interior realms and ask spirit for help.

You're encouraged to explore your inner world with the assistance of your animal ally. The summer of the "eclipse corridor" offered a good deal of chaos - by journeying to the Ukhu Pacha (or lower world) you are offered the opportunity to integrate any aspects of yourself that have been fragmented, recently or long ago, and to welcome these fragments back.

The evening will include the use of the Pachakuti Mesa as the container for the work, anchoring the journey in sacred space and safety. We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. By doing this ritual cleansing (with the use of Peruvian Florida water, smoke & rattles) we will travel to the underworld as our truest selves, leaving behind hucha (dense, heavy energies) so the travels may be clean and clear.   In addition to this -  for tyou may ask for medicine gifts or be open to an initiation of some kind. Directing your animal ally is beneficial in this way – and we will discuss this more at the gathering.

All levels welcome - those that are new to this kind of work to seasoned practitioner.

Jnana Gowan, Sanctioned Teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition and Pachakuti Mesa Tradition carrier, Ceremonialist, Transformational Worker will guide this evenings event. The journey itself will be guided (initially) by voice to the underworld and will include live drumming.
